“Sconfini. Twenty years of Jazz & Wine of Peace” is a box with six books of different sizes that tells in words and images about the Festival held every year on the Italian and Slovenian Collio.
A multiple editorial work that uses the languages of photography, graphics, comics and writing.
The reader will therefore have an essay and narrative text on jazz in Friuli Venezia Giulia (the result of unpublished research); three comic stories; a nice jazz breviary; a large format photo book; the list of all the concerts with the portraits of festival-goers.
The Jazz & Wine Festival of Peace represents a unique example in the national panorama of the ability to offer cultural tourism combining music and territory, conviviality and entertainment.
Established in 1998 by a group of enthusiasts gathered in the Circolo Culturale Controtempo, the event has grown over the years and changed to its current configuration.
A week of concerts in cellars, churches, castles, historic sites and in the evening at the Teatro Comunale. But identity has remained the same as the initial intuition: to use the rich and prestigious oenological production and jazz music in the sign of overcoming political, geographical and cultural boundaries.
